Panel discussion on immigration
November 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm EST
Pax Christi New York State, Pax Christi Metro New York, and the Migrant Center at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, NYC invite you to an online event on immigration.
Where are we now? Where are we headed? Where do we want to be?
With Mayor Eric Adams claiming New York City is doomed if we don’t control the refugee “crisis,” with President Joe Biden reneging on his opposition to a border wall and actually deciding to build more wall, and with Pope Francis, in contrast, saying “In whatever place we decide to build our future, in the country of our birth or elsewhere, the important thing is that there always be a community ready to welcome, protect, promote and integrate everyone, without distinctions and without excluding anyone,” how do we respond as migratory people since the beginning of time and as people of faith?
